Vine: Oregon's Marcus Mariota Goes Airborne, Flips Into The End Zone For A Touchdown

Marcus Mariota is awesome. The Oregon quarterback and Heisman Trophy hopeful's career is full of great moments, and he added another one to his highlight reel today. The Ducks are hosting Wyoming, and midway through the second quarter, Mariota ran for a touchdown. While this is nothing unusual -- Mariota has ran for 17 touchdowns in his career -- this one was different. As he leapt for the end zone, Mariota reached out, and thanks to a Wyoming defender, did a front flip as he finished his 19-yard run with a touchdown.

The game between the Ducks and the Cowboys is at the half, and Oregon leads, 27-7.
